Freelance translator since January 2004, translating from Dutch/Flemish, English, Spanish to French for Belgium/France, also from German since 2013 and possibly from Italian. Specialisation areas: Legal (had law classes for 9 years within other studies, translated legal texts full-time for 7 years 2004-2011, especially Belgian law, particularly labour law due to my studies in HRM - but also other legal systems of course) ; anything business (Master's degree in "Commercial and Financial Sciences" i.e. business administration/finance): finance, marketing, HRM, management, banking, real estate, insurance. My latest large assignment was the translation of an online Forex trading platform (website, 6,500 words). I normally use SDL Trados Studio 2011. I can also translate back to English, but with a non-native flavour of course. I had a near-mother tongue at some point. I lived in the U.S. for one year in 1978-79, then studied English further at university level for 5 years, then worked for mostly English-speaking multinational companies for 18 years before settling as a freelance translator. So I have the maturity and experience of someone who has been around. I have top Internet research capacities. I am a French mother tongue professional translating into her native language. I have a professional attitude and can work 7/7 if needed. Please note that the time is GMT+2 in Belgium from the last Sunday of March to the last Saturday of October ("summer saving time") and GMT+1 the rest of the year ("winter time").
